Jif Chocolate Flavors

Have any of you tried these yet?

I picked up the Mocha Cappuccino yesterday.



I tasted it tonight ... I love it ! Not sure what to put it on other than a spoon

Go with the spoon. Why waste time spreading it on supin' ? Just eat it!

I saw these in these in the store but didn't try them until I read this. I am eating some on whole grain bread as I type today. Yum! Use sparingly though, it is pretty sweet. My kids will gobble it up so this may be my last taste.

I saw both flavors, & was very tempted.

You could:

Dip strawberries in it.

Smear on french toast or waffles.

Make nutellla-like & banana won tons or egg rolls

Frost a cake or cupcakes

Make a panini w/ strawberries or bananas

There may be some recipes on the Jif site.

You aren't kidding .. it is very sweet ! And yeah .. use sparingly if you spread it on anything.

Great ideas Cerise ... will check the site and see what they have. I was trying to envision this stuff as peanut butter cookies but am thinking it might be a bit much. However ... I can see spreading it atop a sugar cookie.

I've never had Nutella but this is a hazelnut spread so it probably would taste similar minus the coffee flavor.

I'm still following Addie's adivice and putting it on a spoon LOL

Each tablespoon is 115 calories, half of which are from fat. I do have to give them points for not having trans fats or high fructose corn syrup, but with sugar being the first ingredient, they ain't gettin' MY money, fer shure!

Good grief. First chocolate cream cheese, and now this. I'm staying out of grocery stores.
